Progressive Pussies and Hysterics Now Shrieking That Donald Trump Wants a Parade to Honor the Military

I guess the fear is that he will, Julius-Caesar-like, ride at the front of the parade and thrice reject a golden laurel before accepting it and becoming Emperor.

The threat of full martial law and social chaos is now so close at hand that Jeff Flake has emailed out detailed plans on where his wife and her boyfriend can meet if they're separated in the rioting.

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) on Tuesday ripped reports that the Pentagon is organizing a military parade at President Trump’s direction, comparing the president to French leader Napoleon Bonaparte.

"I was stunned by it to be quite honest. I mean, we have a Napoleon in the making here. And I believe that we have so many issues around the world in terms of preparing for wars that are ongoing, and wars that may be in the offing because of what's happening in North Korea, that I would say that it's really a waste of money," Speier told CNN's Anderson Cooper.

"I think everyone should be offended by his need to always be showing. He's truly Napoleon-like," she added, referring to Bonaparte, who led France's military in the French Revolution before becoming the country's emperor.

It should be noted that while Napoleon was a world class prick who drenched the world in blood to gratify his own outsized ego, he did kill a lot of Social Justice Warriors in the aftermath of the Reign of Terror.

By the way, the commenter calling himself "Commenter" recommended this video by Lindybiege about Napoleon's greatest foe (and no, it's not Wellington or anyone you've likely heard of), and it's just great. This guy's name -- Sir Sidney Smith -- should be routinely mentioned among the great military leaders.

I honestly couldn't believe all the cool shit this guy did, most of it on his own initiative -- he was essentially rebuked by the British chain of command for going out to beat Napoleon in the Holy Land. And he did beat him there, by the way. This guy went rogue so much he could star in a Tom Cruise movie.

Oh, and Lindybiege really opened my eyes to the full costs in human lives of Napoleon's pointless invasion of just about the entire world. I had previously believed, not sure why (maybe I had a pro-Napoleon prof at one time) that Napoleon's invasions were chiefly defensive to overcome the British-led Cordon Sanitaire against France, but really, what was the point of invading Egypt and the Levant, except to compete with Alexander the Great in some dick-measuring contest with a ghost?

Anyway, really great video. It's an hour long but if you give it ten minutes, you'll want to watch the rest.

BTW, the sidebar is well-stocked today. Given that this is a lame post, feel free to just talk about whatever more than usual.
